I think all of us know a cuckoo’s reproductive strategy: they lay an egg in another bird’s nest. The hatchling pushes out the other eggs/hatchlings, and the poor bird whose progeny was murdered works itself to death feeding a massive bird that killed them.
So, what about the cuckoo in our nest?
We have a government that got in through illegitimate process, some of them blatant, dancing, in your face fraud. All of you who doubt that should read what Larry Correia had to say on the numbers and btw you don’t have to be an accountant to see how ridiculous they are. I do.
AND if you still doubt it, consider that these people (for lack of a better term) had a swearing in under armed guard, surrounded the capitol in barbed wire, and drop like a ton of lead on anyone saying there was fraud in the election. Compare this to Hillary running around for four years (and probably still) saying she wuz robbed, and idiots putting “resistance” (Sheep Resisted) signs on their yards without ANY official push back. Because when you know you won, you don’t deploy cancelling and threaten police for saying you stole the election. On the other hand, when you do–
For me the trouble started after swearing in, with friends in positions of authority who said “But he was sworn in. He’s legally president.”
They still haven’t recanted that, though most of them aren’t sleeping much.
I mean, they did swear an Oath to the constitution of these United States (as did a lot of us) and it can’t possibly sit well with them that this government (soi disant) is ignoring its responsibilities (guarding the borders. Heck, they’re actively inviting and abetting invasion) and financing our enemies, and making it impossible for Americans to earn a living or live in peace.
The problem is the procedures. By procedures this is a legitimate government, because it observed all the right forms.
The cuckoo laid an egg in our nest, and we now have to look after it, because our primitive bird brain recognizes anything in the nest as our progeny, whom we have to look after, feed and protect.
In fact, this is how the Constitutional Republic has been subverted over the last hundred years or so. They came under the cover of constitutional, and therefore–
Here’s the thing: We can’t, every man and woman for himself, decide what’s fair and just.
On the other hand: We have doctrines and indoctrination on the military because our founders and first presidents were terrified of a military dictatorship.
On the third hand: At which point does it become the duty of the military to live up to its oath, not its indoctrination?
On the fourth hand: If that trammel is removed, do we become a military dictatorship?
On the fifth hand: At this point, would it be worse?
On the sixth hand: Have you seen the top brass these days? They went to the same colleges as the members of the Junta and drink from the same cup.
Seriously. Collectively we’re a bird with a very small brain unable to get rid of the invader killing our progeny and fouling our nest.
It can’t go on. It patently can’t go on. I mean, they can take over, institute a reign of terror and try to make us into a communist nation (They are. And today in the grocery store a side joke about socialism got a very worried complete stranger telling me “I’m afraid that’s what they want to do here.” It’s bad out there.) But it won’t last. They think (most people think, and don’t get me started on the media encomiums on Gorbby) that the Soviet Union lasted as long as it did on its own. I’m here to tell you it lasted because we financed it, propped it up and treated it like a real (and co-equal) empire. But mostly we fed it. There is no one to feed us if we go down that path. There is no one to finance us. It will last maybe ten years and go out in a blaze of crap.
The question is, what comes after? And how many good people will we lose?
And will it even last long enough for that shit? I doubt it, because the usurper is giving a speech tomorrow (FOULING a sacred site, btw) which I suspect it’s going to tip us into hell. This post is so late because I have that “something wicked this way comes” feeling and it’s bad. I had disturbed dreams all night.
The idiots, of course, think if they tip us into boog they win. They won’t. Their winning is not in the cards. Unfortunately, it’s quite possible for both of us to lose.
And for the world and civilization to lose.
The Prince Roger series by Ringo and Weber deals with this situation. In the last book it’s obvious the military knows that there was a coup, that the Empress is prisoner. But they can do nothing, because the coup followed the forms. In the book, of course, the lost heir shows up.
That is one advantage of monarchies. We have no lost heir. Yes, we can pray for the George to come again, a man so upright that he walked away from a potential kingship. But I think a nation gets one of those once.
Pray for the United States of America. PRAY even if you’re an Atheist (The novelty might catch His attention! Also, you might be talking at the end of a disconnected phone, but do it because I asked, and because it won’t hurt. There are indications about how the universe is constructed that even if you don’t believe in G-d, your thoughts might affect things.) Pray and prepare.
Because we’re about to tip into the cacky.
And heaven help me, I don’t know what crawls out afterwards.
